Capital Insurance backs Team PNG

Capital Insurance Group this week announced its insurance cover for Team PNG athletes and officials who will be travelling to the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast.

Under this support, the Pacific’s leading insurer will be taking care of the team’s medical and travel insurance giving them peace of mind as they focus on their roles at the Games.

“We want the team to be focused and not worry about other issues so we are pleased to provide this support and be part of the Team and the Games,” said chief insurance officer David Lee.

The cover is part of Capital Insurance Group’s sponsorship support for Team PNG which protects the team members and their cargo for the duration of the Games period.

Deputy Secretary General of the Papua New Guinea Olympic Committee, Andrew Lepani, thanked Capital Insurance saying it is a great relief for the team.

“This means that Team PNG has peace of mind knowing that they are covered by Capital Insurance, and in the event that something unforeseen does happen, they know that they will be taken care of.

“We want our athletes to have an amazing Games experience and with this support, it means that they can focus on doing their best for the country,” said Lepani.

Capital Insurance has been the official insurer of Team PNG since 2017 and has watched over the team for the Pacific Mini Games in Vanuatu (Van2017) and the Asian Indoor & Martial Arts Games (AIMAG) in 2017.
